Lot 140 - 1973 Triumph TR6
|Result||Sold - £14,560|
The TR6 was introduced in 1968 and was the bestseller of the TR range when production ended in July 1976. The bodywork closely resembled that of the previous model, the Triumph TR5. The design house, Karmann Consultants, squared off the front and back ends to give the TR6 its sharpened look. Fitted with a 2.5 litre, in-line, six-cylinder engine, the TR6 could reach 60mph in just over 8.5 seconds and onto a top speed of 120mph. It featured a four-speed manual transmission with an optional overdrive unit and semi-trailing arm independent rear suspension, 15" wheels and tyres, bucket seats and a full complement of instrumentation.
This lovely example is presented in dark maroon with tan interior and having been imported originally from California, it is in good condition throughout as one would expect from a ‘dry State’! The hood is black and is in good condition, with the engine bay looking very clean as is the underneath of the car, as one would expect. The car comes with its original US title and is currently registered in the UK so comes with a V5 registration document. A wonderful example in great condition.
